Tip of the Day 6/25/10

Are you a coupon user or a couponer?

A COUPON USER is a shopper who collects a few coupons, usually they save only the coupons they know they will use, they head to the store and use the coupons on the items they need that week paying no attention to sales, deals, or Catalina’s.

A COUPONER is a shopper who actively collects and organizes coupons, and pays attention to and shops when there is a sale or special offer. Extreme couponers buy multiple coupons inserts/coupons, stockpile, and quite often will complete multiple transactions.

I’m a hardcore couponer! How about you?

    I am proud couponer! I dont buy coupons, do multiple transactions or buy like 100 of the same thing at once. But I do the freebies at CVS and Walgreens and have a healthy stockpile of goodies. I wish I could do better at couponing for groceries but its hard because my stores dont have the great deals (double coupons, great catalinas, B1G1 sales, etc) that I see posted in other areas.

    I don't buy coupons either – unless you count buying the weekly newspaper. I didn't start saving lots of money on groceries until I found Jeri's CouponSTL blog. Her blog has really saved my family lots and lots of money!

    I buy 1 Sunday Paper and family and co-workers pass on their inserts to me so i end up with quite a few. I have a binder with baseball inserts and always hit up CVS and Walgreens once a week for the deals. I also browse Walmart, SuperTarget, HEB and Sun Harvest on a pretty regular basis.
